(Dec. 29) Monterey-Calif.-based Pro*Act is looking for a new Florida foodservice distributor following the Dec. 22 announcement that Pro*Act member Incredible Fresh Produce, Fort Meyers, Fla., had entered into a sale agreement with Houston-based FreshPoint Inc.

Lloyd Ligier, Pro*Act vice president of business development, said Incredible Fresh would resign its membership after the sale of the business is completed in January.

Ligier said he planned to travel to Florida in late January to interview possible replacements and hoped to have a new member in place by March or April.

Pro*Act has more than 40 distributors with more than 60 distribution centers in the U.S. and Canada.

The defection of Incredible Fresh left Pro*Act with five Florida distributors: East Coast Fruit Co. Inc., Jacksonville; Enrique Produce, Riviera Beach; Weyand Food Distribution Inc., Tampa; Weyand East, Orlando; and Pro*Act Specialties, Miami.
